It's not just Sharp (SHCAY.PK) that's feeling the pain caused by a weak TV market: Sony (SNE), Samsung (SSNLF.PK), Panasonic (PC), and LG have all significantly lowered their 2012 sales targets. Sony's target has dropped by 4M to 15.5M, and Samsung's by 10M to 40M. The ripple effects are already being felt by everyone from panel makers (AUO, LPL) to component suppliers (GLW, NXPI, STM) to retailers (HGG, BBY, CONN).

  • Shocking as I thought the economies around the world are doing so good.

  • OK - GLW is on this list, but their primary sales is now (or fast becoming) cell phones, where Gorilla glass gives them a sole source position in many applications.
    As soon as Cramer wakes up and really understands GLWs business, we should see a nice upside - especially at 7-9 times earnings.....and yes, I'm long GLW.

  • Thank you for your frank answer. I've owned GLW for over 15 years and made good money on them. I first purchased corning before their troubled times. Their original name was OAK Inds.
